We went to South Melbourne beach yesterday. The amazingly lovely and generous Smile gave me her Ultra Wide and Slim film camera which I've been coveting for my birthday. I went to Big W to get them developed today and they accidently broke it because they thought it was a disposable camera. Awesome. At least I got some results (with a scratch on every picture, mind you).
I only resized and used auto-curves on these.
Next time, I'll try to limit my photo taking.. I used up the whole roll by around 2pm. That is 7 hours of unphotographed goodness! :(






















Tell me what you guys think about the camera: http://photojojo.com/store/awesomeness/wide-angle-slim
And if I should purchase a replacement. :P

Hazel: Thank you! I feel the same about winter. I don't think I'm ever satisfied with seasons :P. I'm sure they sell this camera where you live! Get your own, they're all mine! :D

Sman: Yes, I did! I love the beach :)
I've got the black one at the moment and I'm trying to fix it. If it doesn't work out, I might buy the white one ;)

it seems part of the 'cheap toy camera movement' except for 35mm film instead of medium format. like the younger brother to the lomo or holga. fixed aperture. prone to light leaks. but you can't beat the price.

you can spot brush or burn some of those scratches in photoshop. though you should have rolled up and taken the film out yourself ;]

Jeannine said...

atmzeal: Yeah, I will do that next time. This was my first roll of film, though. I had no idea how to roll it up :P
